And before chad says anything about me going out for food and drinks all the time ... it's date night!
And I got treated for dinner and drinks last night by the gf's superior from work so I can splurge tonight

This is basically been built as a streetable version of a Group 4 M1 endurance motor, but those were 500hp@9000rpm 3453cc M88/1's. M88/2 that was run in the Group 5 cars in '81 were turbocharged and produced around 900hp, so theoretically I could get 1000+ out of this motor with modern turbo technology and the fact I have more displacement and three development generations beyond the M1

I forgot to look at your car the other day to see if you ever did that quad exhaust yet. I guess not cause it was pretty quiet when you were here. lol
